Krush Groove (1985) – Best Hip-Hop Movie Soundtracks

Warner Bros.

Although ‘Wild Style’ is another “dawn of hip-hop” entry we considered, its overall quality couldn’t compare to the music from this film, which offered a fictional chronicle of Def Jam Records’ early days. The soundtrack included cuts by Run-D.M.C (‘King of Rock,’ ‘It’s Like That’), The Fat Boys (‘All You Can Eat,’ ‘Fat Boys’), and then up-and-comers like LL Cool J (‘I Can’t Live Without My Radio‘). Beastie Boys’ first recording ‘She’s On It’ appears here, as does the great Sheila E. cut ‘A Love Bizarre.’ The record seems almost quaint now, but it’s a monster – the soundtrack of a label forming, and an industry coming together.
